“We couldn’t be more excited to offer our retail partners and their loyal customers throughout the Midwest and Southeast with the premium hot dogs they deserve,” said Kenneth Voelker, vice president of marketing at Sahlen Packing Co. “We believe that no matter an individual’s familiarity with Sahlen’s hot dogs, it only takes one taste to create a lifelong loyalist.
